Cambridge Assessment

Cambridge Assessment is an international exams group that designs and delivers assessments in over 170 countries. The organization runs three major exam boards: OCR, Cambridge Assessment International Education, and Cambridge Assessment English. Cambridge Assessment’s role in education goes beyond those three boards, as they are also involved in research on assessment education, and the management of admission tests through Cambridge Assessment Admission Testing.

Cambridge Assessment Admission Testing is part of the University of Cambridge and has been operating on a global scale for the past 15 years. The organization is globally recognized for their excellence in assessment, thanks in part to the extensive research that backs their admission testing process.

Cambridge Assessment Admission Testing manages a variety of tests, including the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT), Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA), Test of Mathematics for University Admission, The Cambridge Personal Styles Questionnaire, and major entrance exams for the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. The entrance exams include undergraduate programs such as Biomedical, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Literature, Computer Science, Economics and Philosophy.
